BUSTER PLAYS BUSTER

This epic Buster Keaton silent movie from 1928 was the last feature length film Keaton ever made (wrote, directed and starred in) with complete artist freedom and marks the end of his golden era. It features the hapless young Buster trying to win the approval of his long lost father, the rough and tough steamboat captain Bill Sr, who loses his business and liberty. A violent storm and hurricane are the back drop for Buster’s chance to redeem himself with daring deeds of rescue and provide the opportunity for some of Keaton’s most famous scenes. Knowing it is his last roll of the dice Keaton throws everything in to this movie. He builds an entire town only to destroy it and performs several death defying stunts, including a 2 tonne house facade falling on him which he only survives by standing in the space of an open window.


Following on from the success of his first “Buster plays Buster” show Buster Birch has created a brand new jazz score for this movie with a set of jazz standards which again have been specifically arranged and scored to perfectly fit each scene. His first class quartet, featuring some of London's finest jazz musicians, play with superb skill and are given plenty of opportunity to show off their highly accomplished improvisational abilities.


Running time 70 mins

"This show is not just a surprise, it’s a real treat... This audience loved it – I defy anyone not to."

CHRIS HOWES - Brook Theatre, Chatham


"from the beginning there were cheers and whooping in response to the playing and films. A great evening." DEIRDRE CARTWRIGHT - Blow The Fuse


"Buster Plays Buster was simply one of those nights that will be remembered long after the last note was played. I don’t think anyone present could have anticipated being entertained with music of such quality and sensitivity that, at times, had the power to bring tears to the eyes... What a great evening of top class entertainment"

JAN STANYON - Eynsford Village Hall
